Plans reports

Our plans reports disclose potential issues that would invoke rejection when a plan or description is submitted as part of an application for registration.

The decision on whether to request a level 1, 2 or 3 plans report is dependent upon the quantity of information you wish to receive. This decision is not mutually exclusive to any particular type of application (eg first registration or transfer of part) as the information in each level of report is equally applicable to all application types.

Please note if a request for a level 3 plans report could be considered complex, e.g. over 25 hectares or an arbitrary shape not following OS features, then digital data will be required to complete the request. Digital data should be forwarded to reports@ros.gov.uk quoting your request number. For maximum efficiency digital data should be provided at the point of submission of your request. If submission of digital data is not possible, it may be necessary to complete the report as a level 1.

If your report includes servitude or ancillary areas, we'll complete a level 1 report for these. We'll confirm if the plan is suitable for registration and note any registered cadastral units that affect in part 5 of the report.

Please note the report won't comment on verbally described servitudes; it's the responsibility of the submitting parties to ensure these meet registration requirements.

Please see The Journal article 'Plans reports: an evolving scene' for more information.
